A FRESH wave of strikes by Mitie's Unite workers at Sellafield will continued until Monday 17th June.

The dispute is a result of Sellafield's staff, which are provided by outsourcing giant Mitie, who have been striking over pay issues.

180 Unite members started the strikes in April, which be done in four intervals covering 28 days.

Ryan Armstrong, Unite the Union representative, said: "The fourth set of strikes started on Thursday.

"Many of Mitie’s staff are being forced to borrow money from family and friends while some have even had to resort to food banks because of the company’s poverty pay."

Mr Armstrong also stated Mitie staff used bullying tactics towards Unite workers during the third set of strikes.

A spokesperson from Mitie denied the company have used bullying tactics.
